Research Experiences Among Native American in New Mexico


Lydia Lum has an article up that deals with the Research Experiences Among Native American in New Mexico. It profiles the work of Paulita Aguilar.

This great quote is from the article:

“Faculty assume that students know how to use a library before they come to college, but that’s not always the case,” says Aguilar, who grew up in Santo Domingo Pueblo, a few miles outside Albuquerque. “And those students usually feel too intimidated to ask faculty for help. Some don’t even know the difference between Google and a database.”
